Hot meals, social connections at Community Lunch on Capitol Hill

Screen Shot 2013-12-06 at 9.51.50 AMCHS recently showed you images of life on the streets around Capitol Hill and below I-5. Here’s a good view of one effort to help out.

Community Lunch on Capitol Hill has been providing hot meals and a social structure 200 to 300 diners at a time in the neighborhood for nearly 30 years. Lunch is served at noon each Tuesday and Friday at Central Lutheran Church, while supper is served at 5pm each Thursday at All Pilgrims Christian Church:

In 1984, a group of members of Central Lutheran of Seattle began providing nutritious meals to low-income senior citizens in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.
They decided that those served would be treated as guests to encourage an atmosphere of mutual respect and hospitality. Thus, guests dine on porcelain plates with silverware. They are welcomed at the door and encouraged to help themselves to seconds and thirds. Guests are our neighbors and are welcomed as friends.
